Order of Toffy
Return to L'AFN
French Version



Every year the Maple Sugar Festival du Sucre d'Érable offers an excellent School Program during the week in which the Festival takes place.

Presentations take on different flavours every year. They can take place in the schools themselves, at which both a workshop and concert, which acknowledge the theme of the Festival, are offered. As well, students can visit the Festival site to partake in sugar shack traditions.

In 2016, several schools will be visited and entertained by musical group RéVeillons.

Students will also visit the Festival site at Beban Social Centre in Nanaimo on Friday, February 26. They will delight in tasting the popular toffy on snow, tourtière (French Canadian meat pie) and tarte au sucre (sugar pie) while listening to Danny Party, the popular musical group from New Brunswick.
